Olefin metathesis is a useful method applied for synthesis of fine chemicals and advanced polymeric materials. Ruthenium and molybdenum/tungsten catalysts have been known as efficient catalysts. The group of Prof. Nomura has recently demonstrated that (imido)vanadium(V)-alkylidene complexes containing anionic donor ligands exhibited from moderate to high catalytic activities for ring – opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) of norbornene (NBE) and the derivatives.1-3. Prof. Nomura will present the group´s latest results on metathesis with (imido)vanadium(V)-alkylidene complexes.
